  • BROOKE FLOYD: Charged in Yell County.
A manslaughter charge has been filed against Brooke Floyd related to the incident in which her husband, Brian, and 10-month-old son, Harper, were found dead in a remote area of Yell County.

An arrest warrant released afterward, being reported here by 40/29, indicates both Floyd and her husband were taking meth and believed, perhaps because of hallucinating, they were under attack. Cause of the deaths has not been released and details of the episode remain hazy, including which death is being charged against Brooke Floyd.

UPDATE: Details emerging say an autopsy found the infant died of exposure and abandonment, according to Channel 11.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
